Publisher Arthur Sulzberger on the future of the NY Times print edition:

"I really don't know whether we'll be printing the Times in five years, and you know what? I don't care, either," he says. He's looking at how best to manage the transition from print to Internet.
"Internet is a wonderful place to be and we're leading there," he adds. The Times has doubled its online readership, and now has 1.1 million subscribing to the print edition - and 1.5 million readers online, each day.
The New York Times is on a journey, Sulzberger says, and its end will be the day the company decides to stop printing the paper. That will be the end of the transition.

I have nieces and great nieces young enough so that I occasionally might find myself shopping for Barbies, and now, finally (if only it were true), I can purchase the Barbie that represents my earliest days, oh those simpler times over on East Kiest in South Oak Cliff. That's right, I'm talking about Oak Cliff Barbie.

This, by the way, is why Google bought YouTube last year: So it could turn legal threats like this into money-making deals, so Google becomes a de facto redistribution channel for publishers like Viacom.

Keep the lasagna flying: Robert Anton Wilson, R.I.P..

I'm never sure whether to be embarrassed or not that Wilson's The Illuminatus Trilogy was the book that had the biggest impact on my thinking. I was so sad when I finished because I wanted it to go on forever. I wish he could have as well.

Picture of 188 Suffolk St. being power washed (via kottke.) Yikes. Makes me think of when Steve's nephew (?) came to visit NYC for the first time and at the end of the trip Steve asked him what he thought about the City. After thinking about it for a moment he said: "It's dirty."

Getting out of the subway the other night I thought it strange to see a cow come running down Bay Ridge Parkway followed by the police.
